The 8th Microfluidics Consortium is working on a range of standards which
will facilitate uptake of microfluidic technology.

It is focussing on:

Higher temperature/pressure interconnects for research, analytical and process
instruments based on reusable chips.

Chips holders including microfluidic and electrical and/or optical interconnects for
analytical and process instruments based on reusable chips.

Interconnects for disposable chips for health care and diagnostics.
